Dad’s Birthday

Today would have been my Dad’s 83rd birthday. He passed away in 2006 after he suffered a stroke in 1999.  After the stroke he required around-the-clock care (by my Mom) and he was never the same Dad that we knew growing up. This photograph from him though was from the 50th anniversary weekend in September …

Orange County Kids Photographer | Look Mom – no training wheels! | PAD

One the grassy area by the gazebo, Kate practiced riding her bike without the aid of training wheels.  She is doing well with this and seemed to get the hang of it very quickly.  I suspect it’s because she’s been riding her Razor scooter so much in the last year that she has a great …

Orange County Kids Photographer | Fingers on the Keyboard | PAD

Kate has been working hard at learning the basics of piano (taught by Mom).  She seems to pick it up pretty well and once she gets practicing she usually is competitive enough to learn the song. I loved this detail photograph of her left hand learning how to chord this morning.

Christmas 2009

Christmas takes on a whole different meaning with children, especially when they’re old enough to “get” what Christmas means for a child. Plus, this was also Matthew’s first Christmas as well and for a little guy, he was swamped with presents.  So much so, that even though Kate scored a ton of great presents, including …

Nicki & Matthew Come Home | 9 • 16 • 09

Nicky and the baby came home from the hospital today. Incredible care from the nurses and doctors at Saddleback, too, btw.  Hard to believe less than two full days after being delivered they’re here.  It was hectic for Nicki this afternoon.  Kate was wound up and super excited to be around the baby.  When Nicki …

Pulling some images out of the archive from my Mom’s trip to visit us earlier this year.  All images made with the Leica on b & w film. I love the light that comes through our front window in the morning

This morning…

A bit overcast and dreary today…Kate woke up early, in tears, complaining of a cold.  But in a few minutes she was happily watching The Little Einsteins, wrapped in Mom’s blanket.  Off to my wedding, should be a great one…
